Ashby de la Zouch is a pretty market town situated in the heart of the National Forest in North West Leicestershire. It lies close to the border with Derbyshire and at the last census in 2011 had a population of around 12,300.
Much of the character of Ashby de la Zouch is portrayed in Market Street where there are many timber-framed buildings. Unfortunately, many of the exterior facades were later hidden when they were overlaid with brickwork. You can, however, get a good idea of what Market Street looks like today, and get some images of it from the past by clicking on this link to take a heritage tour.
As well as the timber-framed houses, there are also many excellent examples of splendid Regency dwellings. Also, in Bath Street, you will find Rawdon House and Rawdon Terrace which is a Grade ll listed building dating back to 1820s, at which time Ashby de la Zouch was a celebrated spa town.
Ashby de la Zouch is also the proud owner of Ashby de la Zouch Castle which dates back to the 12th century. During the English Civil War, the castle and town played a role as one of the important garrisons of the Cavaliers.
A visit to the castle makes for a great day out for the family. Although the tower of the castle was damaged during the Civil War, energetic visitors can still climb to the top where there are some stunning views to be savoured. There is also an underground passage to be explored, extending from the kitchen to the tower.

Whiplash accident in Ashby de la Zouch
A whiplash accident in Ashby de Zouch may come in the form of a road traffic accident, or it could be the result of someone colliding with you or you being involved in a slip, trip or fall accident. This is because a whiplash accident is basically any sort of accident whereby your head and neck are jerked uncontrollably backwards and forwards.
The uncontrolled jerking action results in your head travelling beyond its normal travel parameters. This causes an overstretching of the ligaments, muscles and tendons in the neck. These then become inflamed causing severe pain and discomfort each time you try to move your head.
While the majority of whiplash accidents are those where the head is jerked backwards and forwards, the jerking can also be from side to side depending on the point of impact. The same immobility and pain will be experienced.
A few years ago, the accepted medical treatment for a whiplash injury was to fit the injury victim with a neck brace. However, in more recent times the medical fraternity now agrees that the victims of whiplash injuries will recover faster if they regularly exercise their necks.
Because this involves severe pain and discomfort, it is usual to issue prescribed pain medication to manage the pain during the physiotherapy sessions. These sessions can be practice at the home or in the workplace if you are fit enough to go to work.
In many instances, the victims of whiplash injuries are forced to take time off work, and depending on individual circumstances, this can result in lost earnings. If you appoint us here at Accident Advice Helpline to act as your personal injury solicitor in Ashby de la Zouch, we will ensure that any compensation we negotiate on your behalf covers any loss of earnings or out of pocket expenses.
